 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON: WEDNESDAY^MOKNTING NOVEMBER 7 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  IcKINLEY OF OHIO THE WINNER  His Majority in the Electoral College will be Almost as  Large as it was Four Years Ago.  BRYAN DID NOT GARRY HIS HOME PRECINCT IN LINCOLN  Xkw York, November 7--1 a.m.  - It became evident at a very early  hour last evening that the election  of McKinley and Roosevelt was  assured. At half past eight returns  from nearly two-thirds of the elec1  tion districts of Greater New York  l^rr had been received, indicating that  Bryan could not expect more than  '25,000 or 30,000 plurality in this  Democratic stronghold, and unless  there was a landslide in the outside  counties beyond all reasonable expectations, the pivot state of ^ew  \ork had declared in unmistakable  torms.although by a greatly reduced  majority, for the Republican candidates. As the night progressed it  only served to confirm this "judgment. The returns from Illinois  betrayed a like condition. The Re-;  publican plurality of 189G was  greatly reduced, but it was still far  too large to be overcome. On the  other hand, the returns from Indiana, Michigan and the two Dakotas,  Utah and Wyoming, as well as Nebraska, seemed to indicate strong  Republican gains over 1800. Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia"  had given decisive Republican plur-  - alities. The count in several of the  far "western states was naturally so  delayed as to give little intimation  of the outcome there, but they had  ceased to have a determining effect  and before 10 o'clock the Democratic  leaders had given\ up the .contest,  jitfiditwas announced that Mr.Bryan  had gone to bed and was sound  asleep. The whole story was easily  and briefly told. Tho"- Republican  ticket would have a larger electoral  vote than four years ago, but in the  larger states of the east and middle  west the pluralities had been greatly reduced. Massachusetts has fallen from 174,000 to 50,000; in New  York from 208,000 to 150,000;  Illinois from 140,000 to 100,000 or  Jess.  The latest returns from Nebraska  indicate a Republican plurality.  The fifty-seventh congress seems to  be Republican by a substantial  working majority. The gubernatorial   tickets   have  apparently  braska, New Hampshire, New York,  New Jersey, 'North Dakota, Ohio,  Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, West  Virginia, Wisconsin and ,Wyoming,  and Utah.

These 21  votes consist of the 13 votes in Kentucky and 8 in Nebraska.

President McKinley received the  election returns at his home  surrounded by a large number of  his old friends and neighbors, including many ladies, who came as  the guests of Mrs. McKinley, to  share with her the interest and excitement of thin culminating event  of the campaign. Direct wires connected the house with the Republican national headquarters at New  York and Chicago and with senator  Hanna at the Union Club in Clove-  laud and with the home of governor  Roosevelt at Oyster Bay, New York,  so that tho president was in constant telegraphic touch with his associates on the ticket and with the  campaign leaders. The president  made his headquarters in his library,  where most of the gentlemen guests  congregated, while Mrs. McKinley  entertained the ladies in the parlor.  The president was in his usual good  humor, showing no signs of anxiety  over tke result.  ALABAMA,  Montgomery, November 0.���  Everything Democratic.  ARKANSAS.

THOUSANDS OF DOLLABS EXPENDED!  ',V  In Buying a Mine and Mining Machinery and Supplies and  Little to Show For It. -V  "--'..-.  A SIX-MILE GREEK PROPERTY THAT WAS NOT A BONANZA  '*.  f�� l  v.* I  A. W. Gambs   of Six-mile   creek  was in the eity yesterday on   business.    He is driving a tunnel on the  Alexandra-Dilley property on   contract and tho work will. take   the  most of the winter. 'The property  is looking well and has the distinction of being the   only proposition  in the immediate district   working  at the present time.   In the 90-foot  shaft completed this   summer   the  company has several inches of $450  galena,and in the tunnel now under  way there is twelve inches   of   $40  to $00   ore.   Native   silver   is   on-  countered at many   points   in   the  shaft   and   specimens   of   ore  assaying 1000 ounces can be found all  through the vein.   Tlie tunnel now  under way is to tap the vein at 400  feet depth   and   the   management  figure thiit the improvement   with  depth, will   be   very   considerable.  The only other   property   working  in the district is the  group   owned  by Hittle   and   Nolan,   two   miles  away and on the main Lemon creek.  The partners have taken out   some  high-grade ore and will work ' tlie  claims all winter.  Six-mile creek has been practically deserted by prospectors since  the Golden''. Wedge proposition  went flat. This was an instance of  capital rushing into a mining investment - before the conditions  justified the .outlay.,f A sum of  money estimated at $75,000 to  $90,000 was spent, on' the Golden  Wedge, while the property turned"  out to be practically: valueless/'  Apparently the ordinary course of  obtaining reports, from- practical -  and theoretical miners was neglected, and a sum of money sufficient  to swing a really lirst-class property-  was thus squandered. When tho  Wedge was sold, a company was organized in Toronto, and one of their  first moves was to purchase a ten-  stamp mill... A large sum was expended on a wagon road from the  mouth of Six-mile creek to the  mine, a distance of about 12 miles,  and a further outlay was made in  the construction of buildings at the  camp.   Things dragged along and  finally  a   new   manager   was -an-^!  stalled.   He was skeptical -of- 'the "jf1  merits of the property, but at thejf  instructions   of  the   'managementVl  had the milling plant teametCupJ"J|  from the lake -where it 'liafl^beenff|  lying for six months. ** The Wach-7*  inery was set up and  run as long';  as the ore, held out, less than*.i5>^l  days.   The ore averaged about,*$4*"|��|  per ton, aud when the supply* was^?|  exhausted    the    engineer.'   recbm-'^  mended the management to sbiitup^l  shop, which was done.      _ '������^-'���^0t  A ^ couple of men were to lodlc,^  after the mill, but they were never^  paid for their services, and the iiu.?��j  stitution has stood wide open foiva;^  couple of   years.

Albany, New   York, November  ���0.���A-fire-started-a.t-0:30-tonight-in-  the candy factory of Kreischer   ��fe  Co., and before the   firemen   could  get water on the blaze, the   entire  building ranning through   a   block  was a mass of flames.    Next  door  on Beaver street was the   Knickerbocker Express, the   oldest   established paper in this section  of   the  state    So rapidly did   tlie   (lames  spread that the employees   in  the  building preparing to get   out   the  returns for the morning paper had  to run for   their   lives.    Not   anything of value was saved, the Associated   Press   reporter   having   to  leave without his machine.   By the  concentrated efforts of   the   entire  fire department, the   llaincs   were  confined to the two buildings.   The  office of the Argus is in   the   same  block, and the Times-Union, another  newspaper, is   across   the   narrow  street, and it was at   first thought  that both would suffer.    At eight  o'clock both buildings on fire   were  gutted and thG loss is   entire.    Tlie  Knickerbocker   Express    at    once  started to find means  to   issue   its  paper, and every Albany paper lent  assistaifce.    Mr. McCarthy, the proprietor, accepted the offer   of   the  Argus.    The loss to   the   Knicker-  .bocker Express is $00,000,insurance  $30,000.    The other losses will average $75,000, witli insurance of about  $35,000.  Miner Killed at Rossland.  Rossland, November (5. ��� Andrew Howick, a miner in the Nickle  Plate mine, was killed this morning  by the cage descending upon him.  Howick was doing some temporary  work at the 500-foot level of the  Nickle Plate vertical shaft, where a  platform Jiad been placed^ cutting  off the passage of the"skips, to ,th'e^;  (500-foot   level, .or bottom   of. they |  shaft.   Above Howick, a,t the, 400--U*  foot station, two muckers, named-v  Munroe and Baxter,.,were at .work, \'  aiid it is said that Howick' warned'/;  Munroe that ho_was_at_woi!k^below.yi  him and to be careful, to not allow "i  any   rock   to   fall   on    him   and "���  also   to   keep   the cage   off .him. -.  Munroe,  it   is    said,   told   Baxter ���  about Howick, so that both-men  were   aware   that ��� a - man was  aty  work 100 feet below and directly^  under   them.     At    the    000-foot b  station chairs wore in position tc>y|  prevent the cage from  going anyi-  further down.   The ineu went on  shift  this --morning-' as  usual,  aud'K  about 0 o'clock Baxter, ib is stated, '  heard,    as    he   thought,   Howick j  striking,'on  the  pipe for the.cage.'-;',  Accordingly   he    pulled * out   the 3  chairs and signalled  the engineer  to send tho skip down  to the 000-  foot   level.     The   cage passed on :j  down, and  although the engineer  showed up in' passing, or attempting to pass, the 500-foot station, the  cage ' caught   poor    Howick    and  simply crushed him to death.    The  temporary   platform,     of   course,  held the cage, and Baxter, fearing ;J  an accident, went down tho ladder-  way, only to find tlio  mangled remains of Howick  underneath  the  cage.    Howick was a married man,  |  and leaves  a  wife and  two  small  children to mourn his loss.

McKinley is. undoubtedly re-elected president; and  as far as can be judged from the  meagre returns received, the Republicans have elected a majority  of the members of the next house  -of-repi*esentativesr-which=meets-ou=  March'4th, 1001.; The senate is  now Republican, and is not likely  to change its political complexion  during the next four years. This  means that the United States will  remain on friendly terms with  Great Britain ; that there wilt be  no change in the financial laws of  the country; and that there will  be no scuttling from the Philippines. It means that the business  aud political conditions that now  prevail in the Republic will continue���and probably it is for the  hest. "   The   people   of   Great    Britain  voted confidence in the   Salisbury  government.   The   people   of   the  United States have said at the polls  that they still have   confidence   in  the Republican party and president  McKinley.   Will tlie people of Canada say at  the   ballot-box   today  thatpremirr Laurier and the party  behind him are worthy   an   extension of time, in office ?  Williams's Side of the Case.  Nelson, November 0.���To the  Editor of The Tribune: I shall be  obliged if you will publish this re  the Williams���-Chapleau Mining  Company dispute: Any question  of account between Mr. Williams  and the company will be thoroughly  gone into in the near future, and it  is unfair to him that the community  .should be led to believe that  he has laid himself open to a  charge   of   embezzlement.    Ever  since the organization of the company in this province it has had  the services of both a bookkeeper  and an inspector, who Avere in a  position to advise the company of  any improper use of its funds; and  that the company felt that it could  entirely trust Mr. Williams in the  matter is shown by the fact that  quite recently it placed a large sum  of its money to the private account  of Mr. Williams at a bank in Nelson. Furthermore, Mr. Williams  has too large a stake in the company to make it worth his while to  do anything which would injure  the ultimate success of the company's undertaking.  HexhV A. Stewart.  "   American Bravery Praised.  London, November 0.���The Gazette prints general Gaselce's dispatches to the secretary of state  for India. Referring to the operations for the relief of Pekin and  general Dorward's report of the  operations .about Tien-Tsin, Gnseleo,  among half a dozen others, mentions for special services two Americans "who gallantly supported our  fighting line, namely, major Qnin-  ton and captain Taylor," both of  the l'lth United States infantry.  General Dorward's '-eport reports  little news, but, relating to the  withdrawal; of the Ninth United  States infantry after it had suffered  so heavy after tlm attack at Tien-  Tsin, he pays : "I would specially  bring to notice the conduct of major  Lee during the retirement, in him  the regiment possesscsan officer of  exceptional merit. Among many  instances of bravery during the  action I would specially bring to  notice captain Smedley ltutter,  United States marines, in bringing  a wounded man in from the front  under heavy lire. Uutter was  wounded while so doing, and was  himself carried out of the firing line  by adjutant Leonard, Avho, I regret  to say, was dangerously wounded  in so doingj"   Successful MaeNeill Meeting.

SLOCAN dUNCTIOjT HOTEL  J. H. McMANUS, Manager  PLATFORM  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Party in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  We, the delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, in convention assembled, reaffirm, the principles of the  party, and more particularly that cardinal principle, protection to home  industries, and-that that principle be carried out so that all sections'of  the country shall equally share its benefits.  The one industry on which tho prosperity of this constituency is  ' almost wholly dependent is raining; and we believe tliat our mining industries are as fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  =and=lead4>roductsibc=inereasedrso4;hat^  imposed by the United .States on the same articles.  That the output of the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  ���therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie iu circulation shall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  Wo advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and^Japanese, and'all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  British Columbia has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore wo advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is mado that this constituency shall be given representation, according to its poi>nlation.  That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics to take  "part in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.

Marching hundreds of miles,  winning many hard fought fields,  (.hoy have aided iu the conquest of  two republics and have seen their  Mag raised over two capitals and  countless minor towns.

They are the victors of Baardo-  Ixii'g, where the lion of the veldt,  Ci'onje, was . netted and had his  claws clipped. But the link in the  Chain of empire which they have  forged will be the feature of their  work which will appeal to history,  mid the imagination of the nation  builder, for by "their absence of a  year they have advanced the cause  of Imperial unity by half a century,  l./ittle wonder, then, that Halifax  a-liould overflow, .with the molten  lire of patriotism, and that Canada  ut large should be ranging itself in  heavingvlines to welcome as.

Imperial, and  at the same time, the Dominion  structure. Canada welcomes and  crowns with laurel the victors of  J'iiai'deberg*.   Left to Take Possession.  The representatives of the Chapleau Mining Company, Messrs. Dus-  _met,Grammout,Mourguesand\V!ey_l,_  left yesterday morning to take possession of the mine.   They wero accompanied by the sheriff who   carried a copy-of the injunction issued  , by the supreme court, in case opposition should be met with, ft is  understood the work at the mine is  to be continued under the direction  ..of M. Mourgues, the engineer. The  machiuery for the mill is all on the  ground and the balance of it can  be placed in position quickly. The  tramway only requires a few finishing touches to be in running order,  and these can be made inside of the  week. The mine is developed.to a  stage where there is sufficient ore in  sight to keep the mill going to its  full capacity for the winter.  Scotch Game Comes High.  The autumn season iu Scotland is  now drawing rapidly to a close, and  people are deserting their shooting  boxes for the comparatively  warmer climate of England. From  ii sporting point" of view, the season  has beoh a notable one, but hardly  so in regard to the Scottish gatherings. - .Several .parties, were arranged in'tlieisouth of Scotland for  the annual race meetings at Lanark,  Ayr, and Musselburg, but so many  men are still absent in South Africa  that the balls held in connection  with the races were not altogether  successful. The cost of: shooting-  parties in Scotland is tremendous.  It is generally estimated that the  rent of a Scottish moor is about  $5.25 per ��� brace���that is to say, a  moor that will yield 400 brace will  cost $2100, and yet many side  luxuries, such as a bit of good salmon or trout fishing, a nice yachting   anchorage,  good    roads   for  Keepers' wages are included in this  rent. Tho lessee, especially if unused to shooting, will require a pair  of new guns, which will cost him  from $600 to $800, and in tho gun  room, for guests, will need three  otlier pairs of cheaper manufacture,  which will cost $300 to $500 more.  The ammunition bill, allowing three  shots to a grouse and three shots  for other game, will run to $150 or  more, while the railway fares on a  moor renting for $2000, of lessee,  family and servants, will rarely fall  under $5000. Washing, with cart-  ago to and from London, will  amount to $250 or $.".50; horses and  carriages, usually hired from Loudon, $500 more, not to speak of the  cost of gillies, beaters, etc. It will  thus be seen that a Scotch grouse  averages a cost of about a guinea  and a half", or, say $S, to the aver-  ago English sportsman.  NEWS  WIRED  IN  PARAGRAPHS.  in   New   York  Columbia   02,  A football game  yesterday resulted  Princeton 5.  One of the incidents of election  day in Chicago was the suicide of  Frederick .lanuecks. Upon leaving  for the polls, he remarked that he  was about to cast his last vote.  Upon his return home he committed  suicide by drinking carbolic acid.  Tho election in the United States  took first place in the London newspapers yesterday. Despatches of  unusual length discuss thepossibili-  ties, special articles explain the  election machinery, cartoons reproduced from American papers illustrate the humorous side, and ' editorials explain the party issues.  The French senate reopened its  session at two o'clock yesterday  afternoon. M. Falliers, who presided,  pronounced eulogies on the senators  who died during the summer vacation. After a brief and uninteresting session the house adjourned until tomorrow afternoon. Abill'was  introduced with the object of arresting tho depopulation of France.  Not Afraid of a Tariff War.  St. Petersburg, November 6.���  Referring to the report that Russia and America had agreed to  warn .. Germany, against fulfilling  the ultra-agrarian demands regarding the grain tariff, the proper authorities in the finance ministry  here informed the correspondent of  the Associated Press today .that  Russia does not,intend to interfere  -with-Germany-in-the-Conduct-of-herl  domestic .affairs. Russia, he added,  will not notice the tariff legislation  officially until it is enacted and  commercial treaty negotiations are  begun. It is impossible that Germany will establish maximum and  minimum rates; the discussion of  this point had hitherto been academic. In any case, Russia , will  camly wait, as she is not airaid of a  tariff-war with Germany.  Odious Comparisons.

They decided to " hold the dinner at the  Hotel Phair on the 30th instant, as  usual, and to have the affair'up to  the standard of previous events.  The action of Manley vs. Callom  came up again at the court house  yesterday and the balance of the  evidence for the plaintiff was submitted. Counsel for defendant  moved for a non-suit on nine points.  Seven of the objections were thrown  out and Mr. justice Walkem reserved his decision as to the remainder. In the meantime evidence  for the defence was taken.  Today the balance of tlie' men  employed by J. W. Stewart and J.  V.Welch will be taken off the work,  and the outfits will be .shipped to  the Rainy River district shortly.  A work train is likely to be out on  the" section between" the city and  Five-mile Point in' a few days to  ballast the road. When this is  completed the C. ' P.' R. will have  spent in round figures $500^000 between Nelson and Procter.

On Saturday the party goes to Sandon, where the new church is to be  blessed on Sunday. On Monday  the party will be at Silverton.  ". The social evening at the Methodist church under the aiispiees of  the Epworth League was.eminently  successful. The breach of promise  case from "Pickwick Papers" as  reproduced by members of the  society made a decided hit, eliciting  hearty rounds of laughter and applause. The first number of the  league paper, the Parrot, proved to  be amusing as well as instructive,  and the publication is likely to become a popular feature of the  monthly social evenings. Mrs. R. A.  Laird, convenor of the social committee, occupied the chair.  Three Marriages Yesterday.  ���Rev;���Robert���Frew���celebrated-  three marriages yesterday.
